Hey everyone, I know a lot of you have been following my blog for book updates, and it has been so heartwarming receiving all of your messages about both your interest in reading it and beautiful reviews after the E-book release a few weeks ago! It means so much to me that the story is connecting with you in the ways I always hoped it would, and beyond :) And I appreciate your support along this journey to publication very much!
For those of you still waiting for the print copy of Maya of the In-between, I appreciate your patience. All the pricing and stock issues have cleared up and it is now fully available on online stores as well as for order at bookstores and libraries who have accounts with IngramSpark!
I started writing Maya of the In-between when I was nineteen.
The idea was sparked by a conversation with one of my dad’s friends, Jim Banks, about the conspiracy theory of Agartha – a sophisticated civilisation located at the centre of the earth’s core. At the time, I was living in a city, missing nature and contemplating climate change, and started dreaming about a fantasy future where humans could retreat underground to this magical inner earth if life above ground was destroyed by global warming. Combined with a bunch of other contemplations about the world, Maya of the In-between was born.
It has been a four-year journey of developing and refining, long with a few cycles of rejecting and working on other things, then falling back in love with the story again.
I don't know if it's a story that the mainstream population will love, but if you're interested in themes of technology vs nature, control vs freedom, higher consciousness, and humans connection with nature and each other, then it might be for you.
At its heart, it is a young woman's journey of self-discovery through an epic, interdimensional fantasy adventure set in both utopian and dystopian worlds.
If your local indie bookstore is open I would encourage you to support them by checking if you can order it from there! They've been hit pretty hard by the Covid lock-downs. . .
And if you enjoy the book it would mean so much to me to leave a review on Goodreads, Bookbub and the store you choose to buy it from, to help other readers find it!

Again, thank you for your patience and support, I'm excited to share the story with you :)
"Wow. It's rare that I find a dystopian novel that is equally a utopian one. And this one is the most spiritual one I can remember reading in a while.
This is especially poignant now with the situation around the world. I wonder if the author is aware of just how much truth there is in this novel; it relates pretty closely to other life experiences of mine, along with some of my shamanic journeys in this one.
Another good thing of note, is that the love scenes are not overtly sexual, but rather sensual, so they are appropriate for teens. This is unfortunately something that is rare in teen novels.
If you only read one dystopian novel this year - please make it this one! You won't be disappointed." - Goodreads Review.
